Padacheek Liner
#1
Just tried out a Padacheek liner on my Wuattro air mask however it seemed to be very sufficating compared to the disposable RemZzzs. I put the Padacheek liner on according to the directions and the triangle opening where you breath seems small giving the feeling of sufficating. Do you cut the opening larger ?

I think, can be cut to make the hole bigger, but cut a bit at a time
Just to be sure, give Karen a call, she can help, she was a member of our old forum

Yes, you can enlarge the hole. But as Zonk said, just a tiny bit at a time. The fabric will stretch and you could easily end up with a liner that's more hole than fabric.

I tried the Pad A Check liner with my old Quatro mask, and it lasted about 3 hours before I pulled it off. It was slightly better after removing the felt at the nose and cutting the hole bigger {the challenge is getting it big enough for the nose, without it extending to expose the silicone. I did reach out to Karen and she is supper sweet and helpful.
However the product never worked for me. I used a tip from the board and used a t-shirt and the basic design of the Pad A Check and it worked great. I went to a different DME and they told me the reason for my leak was my nose is to narrow for the Quatro Air and Mirage, so they switched me to Amara View and it has been sweet dreams ever since !!

Good Luck,
Mike

Thanks Mike! I wish That I could master my Amara View mask some nights I do great and then I give up and in the middle of the night I go back to the Qiattro Air. It seems hard for me to get the nasal part of the mask lined up correctly.
